Happy Easter!

“This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it”
-Psalm 118:23
Britton just woke us up excited that the Easter Bunny came into our home to leave their baskets. She also pointed out that he hid many eggs in our backyard, including one “in da plant!”
Then she paused for effect, and explained to me “Mommy, do you know why da Easter Bunny came to my house? Because I BELIEVE in da Easter Bunny. I saw dat in a book, if you don’t believe, he won’t come.”
Now off to wake up sleepy kid Kens… have church service, Easter brunch that I am cooking for Mike’s parents, and may end the day at the country club pool.
Luke 24:49-51 (The Message)
45-49He went on to open their understanding of the Word of God, showing them how to read their Bibles this way. He said, “You can see now how it is written that the Messiah suffers, rises from the dead on the third day, and then a total life-change through the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed in his name to all nations—starting from here, from Jerusalem! You’re the first to hear and see it. You’re the witnesses. What comes next is very important: I am sending what my Father promised to you, so stay here in the city until he arrives, until you’re equipped with power from on high.”
50-51He then led them out of the city over to Bethany. Raising his hands he blessed them, and while blessing them, took his leave, being carried up to heaven.
